Miggins YorkshirePud,
It doesn't look like the Panasonic CA-DC300N lead is compatible. I've had an email back from a very helpful chap, Jason at KTDUK.

He has sent me some other links which I will check out and if suitable post the details.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We don't have the Panasonic CA-DC300N in stock but we can get it. It is
back on our website here
http://www.ktduk.com/site/product.cf...3701AA18572EC4
I spoke to my supplier about compatibility with OEM Honda head units and he said it would not be compatible.

Please don't hesitate to link to anything from our website, or contact me
with any queries.

Best regards

Jason

Miggins LOL
Fisher Price - does it pick up any better than the ELC one I have?

On other . . . . er Forums it has been clearly stated (if not proven) that the leads/kits for US Civics are not suitable.

Thanks for the warning; knowing my luck Panasonic will come back to me saying it'll work like a charm and I'll find out I have a Fisher Price head unit.

If you can get the cubby hole flap off (just in front of the gear stick) you could easily get your hand behind the dash to fit a lead - asked how to get this flap off some time back, but never found a solution.
I'll have a dabble later and see what I can find. Thanks again for the tip.

As for photos - a dash removal is necessary and I'm sure Pottsy has done this somewhere - searching now!

From what i can make out on the pictures CQ-MH5572LG looks like a panasonic part code to me for the HU!

YorkshirePud Many thanks for the info, Miggins - it's good to hear you've been thinking along the same lines as me. The second link you posted to would be the link lead for the older Pioneer head unit. Your first link is the Panasonic equivalent apparently in the later Civic models, and is almost identical except for the suffix - the US ones I linked to earlier were "CA-DC300U" -- yours is "CA-DC300N." I assume the difference is simply administrative due to selling the parts in different countries, and that the leads themselves are identical.

What we now need to work out is:
a) What the model number of our head units is? (Do the units come out easily, and if so, how?)
b) Do these head units share the same "iPod port" that Panasonic advertises on it's other 2006 car stereo units? It would be great to see a picture of the back of one of these (Panasonic models CQ-C5303, 7303, 7703, 8403 and 8803), but I've yet to track one down online.

If I can work out how to get the head unit out I'll have a look at the model number, and will try to find out what the Panasonic iPod port looks like from a local dealer in the meantime. If anyone else can help, do shout up! I know mp3 CDs are a great workaround, but it'd be satisfying to be able to link up an iPod and forget about it!

Miggins found the reply - nothing conclussive!

Hello,

I'm not sure if it is compatible. I know that the Blaupunkt iPod interface
does not work with factory fitted Blaupunkt stereos.

If I hear anything I'll be sure to post a note on the forum.

YorkshirePud,
I found 2 UK suppliers and sent emails mid October but didn't recv any replies confirming the cable was suitable for the Civic. I'm sure it was the same part number. Thought I'd posted info but can't find anything. I'll route out the emails and post the company names.

I'm sure I found it for a bit less than 40 - but memory aint wot it used to be.............er!

MotorWorld do the CA-DC300N lead for 39.99 (Is this the older lead?) (cf CA-DC300U)

Or do we need CD-IB100 - another genuine Panasonic piece of kit for 2nd gen iPods

elisgriffiths hello everybody,
I believe that there is a setting that turns on the mystery female voice, I believe it to be EX only though, and it hides in the sat nav settings menu, can't remember what it is called but it basically just reads out whatever is selected on screen be it a button or what ever i.e. the "tab" for favorite places.

Could be wrong though,

Cheers

Elis

pjelsworth Could it be something that itunes puts on the CD, like a voice tag thingy
7th November 2006 18:14
Bungle Is it just the artist, or does it read track and album names too? Why would Honda keep something this cool quiet?
7th November 2006 18:00
Civic Engineer I'll see if it does it on the way home, BTW it was on the folder screen if that helps
7th November 2006 17:57
Civic Engineer Look at the music I listen to, maybe it has something to do with a pact i made with the devil at a crossroads a long time ago!
7th November 2006 17:34
richierich You sure you weren't listening to the Top40 read by Stephen Hawkings??

Mine is quiet......
7th November 2006 17:31
Civic Engineer I burnt that CD at the same time as the others but not heard this on the one or two I have played, however this was maybe the first time i had let it read the whole disk before playing, maybe its part of the EX's thang but when your half awake and a mystery voice says....Megadeth.....metallica... etc, it wakes you up

Civic Engineer BUT how cool it that!!!! you dont have to take your eyes off the road
7th November 2006 17:26
Bungle I wonder if that's an EX only feature. My ES has cetrainly never done that for me. Please let us know how you got your car to read!
7th November 2006 17:22
Civic Engineer No idea, it was doing it this morning, freaked me out to start with. Had a whole CD of MP3 burnt from Itunes, and as I was scrolling through the various folders to find an album to listen to, a computer type voice was reading them out for me!!!! I cant say I had heard this before.
